Hussey knock lifts Aussies to 141 for seven

Opting to bat, Australia initially struggled as they lost six wickets for mere 65 runs at one stage before Hussey and Smith saved the day for the Aussies with the 42-ball vital partnership. After the initial hiccup, the Aussies added 59 runs in the last five overs, courtesy some fine hitting from Hussey and Smith.

Australia, however, did not have the ideal start to their innings as Shane Watson (4) feel early with Mashrafe Mortaza (2/28) striking in his second and innings' third over.
Watson mistimed a pull of Mortaza's well-directed bouncer that landed in the hands of Aftab Ahmed. Captain Shakib Al Hasan (2/24) then ensured double celebrations for Bangladesh in the next over, picking up dangerman David Warner (16 off 11), caught by Ahmed.
